This is not a macro shot but actually a telephoto closeup. This was shot using a 2X telextender with a 80-300mm zoom about six feet from the rose bush. I was set up to do some bird shooting but I scared all the birds away. Then I spotted the dewdrops on the rose leaves.

Nikon D100, Nikon 80-300mm zoom, Quantaray 2X telextender, Manfroto tripod, cable release. Heavy overcast, WB set for clouds. Sharpened, cropped, and adjusted saturation in PSP9.



(edit) Replaced picture with better edit.

I'm not too sure how I missed this one. Really beautiful, and a telephoto at that. Awesome. I love the detail of the veining in the leaves, the soft background and the drops around the leaves. Almost like a necklace. Extremely well done.

Wonderful shot Cal. I love the droplets on the bottom. They look like jewels the way the light hits them. Very nice background too. Woody

Cal,

nice job, the reflections in the bottom drops add quite an impact.
